Fibro and kids

Feb 25, 2018 7:26 PM

So I finally just found out about my fibromyalgia and it all makes since now with all the wide spread pain and headaches and depression+anxiety problems I’ve struggled with. But before me and my husband found out that’s what I have we had decided to get me fixed up and on the right track and then try for kids but now that I know there’s no cure and it’s not just going to go away I feel really upset at the whole situation. I just feel I am not good enough to be a mom and that it wouldn’t be fair to any future kids to have to deal with a mom that is in pain a lot. I just feel broke and not adequate to be a mom and was just hoping there were some moms out there with fibro that could help

Hi there! Mom of two lil monsters, I'm not gonna lie to you sometimes is hard, really hard specially when one of them is sick and you need to run to help them or when they want you to pick them up, but it's not all bad you just have to explain to them that mummy loves them but sometimes you just can't do somethings because it hurts a little to do it. (Never tell them it hurts a lot even if you feel like you're breaking because it might frighten them, I learn that the hard way) but you are not broke never think you are not adequate to be a mom, you juts prove that you will be a good mom because you worry about your kids even if they haven't born yet. Big hugs to you (English is not my first language so sorry for any misspelling)

Thank you so much! To heard someone else out there has had kids and sounds to be a pretty great mom gives me so much hope and makes me feel not so alone
